Also, I've long been an advocate of 16x10 aspect screens over 4x3 for reading: It's good to see I was right that it is an optimum aspect for reading, both in portrait and dual-column landscape.
Speaking specifically of North American comics, their print aspect ratio is 3:2 (15:10) so when viewing a single page in portrait 16:10 is better than 4:3. Where the iPad really shines though, is with double-page spreads because they are in a 4:3 landscape orientation.

Still, for most comic readers a large 16:10 HD screen is the best available option.
